LOL! I have a true story to tell. I was giving a flying lesson at Eros airport in Windhoek, Namibia many moons ago. The aircraft was a C172, ZS-FFC, and it was parked at the edge of the tarmac with the tail over fairly long grass. The pupil did his preflight inspection and we jumped in and fired up. Nothing seemed amiss during the taxi but halfway to the holding point a quad bike came racing up to us and the rider flagged us down. We stopped and I got out the plane to find that the concrete tie down (which had been well hidden by the grass) was still attached to the aft tiedown ring. :o Apparently it wasn't the first time that this had happened. Never trust the pupil to do the preflight unsupervised. The plane became known as Foxtrot Foxtrot Concrete.

Looks fishey. Why would you be filming that aircraft just on the off-chance it might take flight?

Yes, and the blurb said it was tied down with ropes.......they aint no ropes on dat bird! (Actually, this is not the first time a wind has lifted a Light a/c, and it looks like a security camera, so pot-luck they caught it)
